Cops Looking for Man Who Shot Teen Fast Food Employee

Police say a man in his 50s or 60s got into an argument with an employee, then returned to the store and shot the employee's brother.

Police have released video of the man they say shot a teenage Church’s Chicken employee at the fast food restaurant’s location at Broad and Erie in North Philadelphia.

Cops say a man, believed to be in his 50s or 60s, came into the store and got into an argument with a 21-year-old employee who was cleaning tables. The employee’s 19-year-old brother, who also works at the Church’s Chicken, intervened in an attempt to deescalate the altercation.

The 60-year-old man, who is shown in the video above, left the restaurant and returned with a gun. He fired three shots at the 19-year-old. He was taken to surgery at Temple Hospital and is listed in stable condition.

“He was doing his job, but the guy kept saying, ‘You can’t be doing this spraying. I gotta eat. I gotta eat,’” witness Keith Parker told Action News.

Anyone who has seen the suspect is asked to call Northwest Detectives at 215-686-3353 or 215-686-3354. Anonymous tips can also be called in to 215.686.8477, texted to 773847 or submitted online.
